National Credentials Platform and general credentialing update
As part of the 2019–20 Budget, the Australian Government committed $2.5 million over four years to pilot the first phase of a tertiary learning repository; a digital platform for students and graduates to access, compile, display and share their higher education qualifications, transcripts and learning credentials through a secure online system. Significant additional use cases are anticipated in digital credentialling, including automation of a number of sector processes and generation of previously unavailable analytics based on data that spans institutions, and that in future will span high school, VET, university and employment stages of learner journeys.
In 2021 the Higher Education Reference Group was formed to provide advice from the sector in the development and implementation of the NCP, with representatives from the DVC-A, DVC-C and DVC-R communities. The NCP project is now in a technical prototype phase to develop learnings, through a collaboration including HES (who manage the implementation of My eQuals), UAC and partner institutions.
In this session, Reference Group member Peter Marshall (COO Monash University), and Reference Group facilitator Galen White (Consulting Director FromHereOn), provide an update and seek feedback on digital credentialling from the membership.
